Birth certificate: William Oswald Olson

moddsey posted a 1966 image of Humphreys Avenue, Kowloon. It rang a bell with me but it has taken me until now to find out why.

The birth certificate pictured here is a scan of the original of my Uncle William Oswald Olson from 1910. I suspect Humphrey Avenue has changed somewhat since then! He was the grandson of John Olson and his being born there fits in with the way some of my family moved between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. I suspect my great grandfather John Olson may have owned property in Kowloon because none of the stays were long suggesting he may have let them.

I would much appreciate it if anybody has a picture of Humphrey Avenue at around the turn of the 19th Century.

Many thanks. Sean
